    I'm looking into some lifts for my 01 tacoma. I'm thinking a 3 in lift with a 3 inch body lift just because I don't do any crazy rock crawling. Montana has some great trails and i just want to be raised a lil higher in the air for clearance. Any suggestions for lifts. I was looking at a front adjustible coilover from toytec and adding a leaf spring in the rear. Putting a polyurethane or aluminum block between the leaft spring and axle seems very weak. any suggestions?

    I don't think body lifts are good for any type of offroad use.

    see iam kinda hesitant to buy the toytec coilovers because their basically 5100s useing eibach coils and you can buy those for $300 at www.downsouthmotorsports.com. Using your stock coils they have settings of 0, .85, 1.75, 2.5. I am leaning towards OME little more. I got about 9 months to decide till I pay off the truck I don't want to rush in to anything.

    throw some 5100's on there and set them to 2.5" that will give you plenty of room to throw on a bigger set of tires
